and we were poor, let me tell you about our beginning and michelle obama saying we couldn't afford anything, ann romney saying i remember the first business. we didn't know that it would even succeed. and then they did all the television shows and there were certain shows, for example, like "the view" in which mitt romney did not want to appear because he said that he thought the participants were sharp-tongued. i don't know where he got that impression but mrs. romney did come on and both of them have been to the battleground states many times since the convention campaign. mrs. obama going 21 times, mrs. romney, 27 times they went to nevada, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia and new hampshire and these are the ones who have been the surrogates with mrs. obama, no, my husband is not a cold fish. we have dinner every night with the kids. you should know him. you should see that smile. i love him. you should love him. mrs. romney who is very close to her husband in the strategy, she plays a bigger role than just being the wife of, she is the one who said, he is not a stiff m
michelle obama and other surrogates have been there, but it is quite remarkable it would be this close, unless there had been a lot going on under the surface and in mobilizing the obama voters that maybe we haven't been able to see. >> and by all other reports, gwen, it was a big republican year. the republicans returned the governorship. the democratic governor did not seek reelection. the republicans won the governorship. i think the republicans expected to pick up a couple of house see the, and yet this presidential race-- >> there had been a possibility and again we don't know who the win the election, there had been the thought that president obama would win the electoral and not the popular but with the closeness in state like north carolina, that seems less likely. >> woodruff: i'd like to see the colorado numbers if we can get those up in a few minute. we haven't seen where things stand right now. ray suarez in chicago with the obama campaign. ray displai you know, gwen, people have been filing in here all night and starting to pay very close attention to the returns coming in

[applause] >> thanks, everyone for coming. good night. >> at the last nearly half-century to the discussion of the assassination has been dominated by two schools of thought or if you will two faiths. i'm going to very briefly describe each of them and how they approach the evidence in the case. to begin with, there's the church of the loan assassin whose adherents insist both oswald and ruby were essentially loathe dot's who murdered john kennedy and lee harvey oswald respectively for their own personal reasons. on the other side with the church of the grand conspirators and their adherents frequently rather bake about exactly what they think could happen and who is responsible, but they are to be convinced there was a large conspiracy conviction involving figures within u.s. government and a massive cover-up. >> chairman of
. i seem to get an e-mail from barack obama, michelle, joe biden has been texting me lately. there's no escape. another interesting thing, margaret, is i got an unsolicited anti-obama text message from an anonymous source and lots of people in the washington area got there. mine said "seniors can't afford tour four more years of obama budget cuts to medicare." that's arguable, they're not really cuts, but point is you don't know where it's coming from. a virginia company is behind it. its conservative clients are distancing themselvess from having anything to do with these anonymous text messages. >> warner: are the campaigns themselves using these methods to get out negative messages at this stage or are they all positive? >> they are not all positive by any means. the campaigns have web site which is n which president obama's people attack mitt romney and vice versa. so it's a mix of trying to identify your supporters and get them to register, get them to tell their friends, get them to tell people on facebook and also driving negative messages, sometimings snarky twitter-type me
't use the president there but they sent michelle obama there a lot, she was just there on monday and bill clinton was in north carolina as well. >> we must stress it's early in the evening and we're operating on early figures. but this could be the first real surprise of the evening, if the trend continues down there. >> pelley: the strength of the president in north carolina. >> yes. >> pelley: thank you, bob. let's have a quick look at the presidential race map as it stands just now. the red states we are projecting for mitt romney, the blue states for president obama. but as bob just said, it is early yet. cbs news coverage of election night, 2012, will continue? just a moment. >> pelley: breaking news, cbs news projects that president obama will carry the state of new jersey. and its 14 electoral votes. with that let's have a look at the presidential race map. mr. obama has 78 electoral votes, mitt romney 82 electoral votes at this early stage on the way to 270 needed to win. anthony mason has been looking at some of the swing states where we don't have enough information
speaker out there on the campaign trail. >> she is and what strikes me about michelle obama and ann romney is not doing feel-good speeches. they're talking about policy and, you know, they carry a dagger as i like to say, wrapped in velvet which is what she was doing talking about the auto bailout and mitt romney. so, very political speech. >> very passionate. >> passionate speech. she's become an enormous asset for this president. not only for him personally but her stature has grown over time. i think it grew in part because she warmed up and she also had a softer side. more feminine side. i was a little surprised by the tone of the speech but listen. >> tough. >> it's a last 24 hours. a lot of passions. they're tired. i think all is forgiven. >> gloria, romney making a surprise trip tomorrow to pennsylvania, another one to ohio. do you think it makes a difference? >> well, in talking to people on his staff, they say it will. first of all, no early voting in pennsylvania. so they're not up against the machine there. secondly, i was talking to someone on his staff saying to me today that
. at any rate -- >> he said none of the above. [ laughter ] >> bill: no, that's what michelle obama said this year. and heather during the break i saw on another channel here, they had the little tease will young people turn out the vote this year? so that is a big question about this campaign. what's the answer? >> it is a question we hear every time. of course, we know young people care. this generation, they're not like their older brothers and sisters of gen-x. they actually really care. they're not the slackers. i'll take the blame. the question is will they vote this time around. we've been out on the ground. we've registered over a million voters. >> bill: whoa! >> state by state. they're really engaged when you talk to them. i think the question is how many people were we able to reach. how many people were at the campaign table able to reach. was enough invested in turning out the young people. >> bill: where did you register the one million voters? >> college campuses, high school classrooms concerts an
margin. they were obviously counting these votes deep into the night. but now nbc has called michelle bachmann winning re-election in her district. >>> well, president obama has won a second term. in the end the electoral talley, 303 for the president. 206 for mitt romney with florida still throughout and too close to call. and the popular vote, a difference of more than two million votes separated the candidates. after midnight, governor romney conceded the race in a short speech. >> this is a time of great challenges for america and i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. and we citizens also have to rise to the occasion. >> and there was a lot of other business last night outside the race for the white house. republicans had hoped to win control of the senate last night. in the end, it was democrats who were able to flip several seats in their favor. in massachusetts this is really the headline race, elizabeth
west, for example, is running in a district where obama won. and michele bachmann is feeling the heat in minnesota, steve king in iowa is running against the wife after former governor, tom vilsack and he's feeling the heat, too, an interesting night. >> one of the interesting strategies, the reason they said they would take the house back, they would put pressure on the so-called orphan states, california, and where mitt romney isn't playing, they're not competitive in that race, but the house seats, okay, we can plow a lot of money in, and republican turnout will be down and we can turn the seats, but they're going to win a couple of them, but surprising so far in the polling, republicans are holding their own in those seats, why? >> you're right. they are he' doing this very aggressively, especially going after freshmen that won in 2010, guys like bobby schilling in illinois the first republican to get elected in his district in 30 years. the reason you're not going to see a huge shift is because one thing the republicans did well. not only being aggressive in the south and some of
-lasting marriages, low likelihood of raising children alone. michele obama was a health care executive making a lot of money and barack obama was in law school doing public service and they have switched places where he is the main guy and she is the supporter and this is a pretty common pattern of marriage among the college-educated and it has proved to be a stable, good model where as for everybody else in america for the 70% of americans who don't have a college degree marriage is disappearing. people are not getting married. if they are getting married they have high divorce rate and rates of single motherhood are astronomical. it is largely because women are doing everything and the men are dropping out of society. they are not finding themselves -- i reported this in this town in alabama, a hard time getting on their feet figuring out how to remake themselves and what you see is a lot of men going on disability or just not dropping out of the work force. we have the lowest labor force participation rate among men they have had since the 1940s. i want to close off by explaining what the -- wha
a lot of the vice presidentials. we saw both michelle obama and ohio had to events. joe biden had her first and only solo campaign event yesterday in ohio. we are seeing a lot of the presidential candidates. we're going wherever they are. host: tom tory was joining us from cleveland. meanwhile we are live in lakewood, ohio. thank you for being with us. guest: my pleasure. host: next is carolyn, democrat's line. good afternoon. caller: i am just calling to say that i am very pleased with my president. he has done all he can to work with the republicans. they will not work with him. i am from a small town. it is evident how vindictive they are. the way they did president obama, and they have not done anything. they said religion was off the table. what i have read about organism, i do not want nobody that doesn't serve god. host: republican line. caller: i am just disgusted to listen to all these lies. i just listen to biden. i would like to know -- i like the americans to know if obama is president again we're going to end up like russia. there are thousands of family in cincinnati tha
and michelle obama who she is and can make america who we need to be with only if we focus to prioritize that. i saw that when he came into office and we were on the verge of potentially a second great depression people were focused on the stimulus and he said we can't pass the bill, an economic recovery build a central focus on education both investment and reform from early learning to head start to the kate wolf and post secondary. he's also had a consistent dissatisfaction with the status quo. it goes back education before comfortable with how we are doing he knows the kids across the country are getting shortchanged because we haven't done well enough and he has been a change agent to make changes in education. and he's always listened to people on the ground. i've been with him in new orleans before he was president listening to students and city members and what's actually going on. the believe has been translated into a core education policy agenda that i think has been very not only important but in some ways unique in recent days education. he shifted the role in many ways to focus
